Recent weekday car accident claims married couple

When one hears of fatal crashes, it may be common to assume that either intoxication or foul weather are to blame. However, sometimes, distracted driving or other negligent behaviors are to blame. A recent Minnesota car accident may have been caused by an inattentive dump truck driver.

The fatal crash took place along Highway 55 on a Thursday afternoon. According to responding police officers, road conditions were dry at the time of the collision. The initial report stated that a semi truck was stopped in the left lane while waiting to complete a left-hand turn. Two other vehicles were behind the truck -- a couple in a passenger car and a pickup truck behind them. Police said that a driver operating a construction vehicle purportedly failed to stop for the traffic ahead of him, and his dump truck slammed into the line of vehicles.

The impact shoved the pickup truck off of the road and into a roadside ditch. The passenger car was trapped between the dump truck and the tractor-trailer. Though emergency responders provided life-saving measures, both of the passengers in the car -- reported to have been a married couple in their 40s -- later died from their injuries. In three other crashes in the greater Twin Cities area, a man in his 30s, a teenager and an expectant mother were all killed in unrelated wrecks.

car accident takes a terrible toll on families. Victims who survive these terrifying events often suffer from physical and psychological side effects for years to come. Those who lose loved ones may never fully recover from their grief and may struggle with the monetary damages for months. When there is evidence that a Minnesota crash was the result of negligence on the part of another party, victims or their families may have recourse to recover their financial losses through the civil justice system.
